Like all political ideologies, socialism means different things to different people; everything from universal healthcare to the complete and total subjugation of the populace, to just kind of annoying everyone at your local offshore detention protest.

But to one helicopter lovin’, Sky News-commentating former speaker of the House, socialism has a very personal, amorphous definition. That is, “whatever the hell Bronwyn Bishop doesn’t like on any given day”.

    At least this old nutter is out of the speaker’s chair. 250K per annum? she should be repaying that amount from her cell. And who is to follow? Pyne with 26 years of superannuation. Abbott; the political joke of the century. Then come Abetz, Andrews and the rest of the ‘usual suspects’. Can we afford to keep these parasites in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed? Not that I feel strongly about it.

      If we could manage it, it’s worth the money to not have them there. If any of them retire, I’m gonna be happy with that.

    Bronhilda is one person I would prefer never to hear about again, except her demise.

    I always enjoy a bit of comic relief during the festive season. This woman is so much of a caricature that I see her as 25% far-right harridan and 75% joke – an anachronistic old fool with almost no remaining credibility among the people at large.
